Incoming freshman may be invited into the University Honors Program based on consideration of high school grade point average (GPA), class rank, curriculum, and standardized test scores. They will be notified of their admission to the University Honors Program following their admission to Wittenberg, usually by early summer.
Other first and second year students are invited to apply for membership to the Honors Program early in the spring semester each year if they have achieved a 3.5 cumulative GPA.
Once admitted to the program, a student may take honors seminars, which usually satisfy a general education requirement, as well as utilize the Matthies House and attend special Honors social events. Students must maintain a 3.5 cumulative GPA throughout their Wittenberg career to remain members of the Honors Program.
